A Perfect Circle Announce New Album and U.S. Tour, Release “TalkTalk”

A Perfect Circle have announced their fourth full-length album, Eat the Elephant, and released a slow-burning new song, “TalkTalk.” The new album, the band’s first in almost 14 years, arrives April 20 via BMG; it includes earlier singles “The Doomed” and “Disillusioned,” as well as a Douglas Adams shout-out titled “So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish.” A Perfect Circle have also announced a new run of spring tour dates in the U.S., in addition to several previously announced festival performances.

In a statement, Maynard James Keenan dedicated the album release to singer-songwriter Carina Round, who’s also a touring member of Keenan’s band Puscifer:

Although I’m extremely excited to finally be completing this album after a 14-year hiatus, I’m actually more excited that its intentional release date is serving a greater purpose. The 20th of April is Carina Round’s birthday. She is a dear friend who is extremely difficult to shop for. Pressure off. Of course, I must also note that the potheads are gonna be thrilled that this album comes out on 4/20. May it serve as a glorious soundtrack to accompany all of the giggling and vexing sounds of nibbling and snacking. Fingers crossed, Cheech & Chong will be proud.

A Perfect Circle’s previous album was 2004’s eMOTIVe. Hear “TalkTalk,” check out the Eat the Elephant track list, and see A Perfect Circle’s full tour schedule below.
